Doyle Sails pioneered the Structured Luff technology, changed the game and continues to lead the fleet of sailmakers trying to achieve the same result.

With many years of innovation and development in the bank, Doyle Sails continues to design and deliver sails with better performance, speed and handling efficiencies. Significantly less luff sag and reduced loads, creates more driving force from greater projection.

Exclusive to Doyle Sails, don't get left behind.



When cruising, ease of use is paramount when it comes to sails. Structured Luff sails ensure ease of handling and ease of furling. A game changer.



Structured Luff sails were designed and developed on the race track, using Grand Prix sailors and yachts to trial and test.



The biggest loads often see the biggest gains with Structured Luff technology. Changing the way Superyachts are designed and built.



Structured Luff sails have the potential to improve performance on a wide range of sailing vessels but there is one group that stands to gain exponentially….Multihulls.

"The Doyle Structured Luff headsails have changed the upwind performance of Money Penny. I call them a flying jib as when the load goes to the forestay the luff actually projects to windward instead of sagging to leeward. A massive improvement for this yacht".

Sean Langman, RP65 Money Penny


Pioneers of Structured Luff Technology |

Doyle Sails with Structured Luff technology offer more versatility and changes the way a sail behaves through a more balanced distribution of loads.

Doyle Sails Structured Luff exploits the power-potential and control previously undiscovered in conventional sail luffs.

This leading-edge design philosophy is applicable for a wide range of sail materials and boat types, exclusive to Doyle Sails.

What is Doyle Sails Structured Luff technology? Exclusive to Doyle Sails, Structured Luff technology is a different approach to upwind and downwind sail design with a special focus on the luff area of a sail. The superior design providing extended aerodynamic benefit, easier trimming and handling, and reduction in loading on the boat and rigging.

What types of sails can I get with a Structured Luff sail? Doyle Sails Structured Luff technology is available for Mainsails, Headsails, Staysails and all others.

How do Structured Luff sails work? This begins from the design, with the load share of the sail that is usually in the luff (or headstay) of the sail being redistributed through the rest of the sail evenly. This takes load of the luff of the sail, allowing the luff to fly 'freer' and often to windward. This enables more speed from greater projection. By incorporating Structured Luff technology these sails become more stable and efficient through a wider range of conditions.

Is there are difference between a Structured Luff Racing or Cruising sail? The theory is the same. With cruising sails, the focus remains solely on reducing the weight of the sail so that it takes less people to handle, while also reducing the need to constantly adjust the sail shape. Racing Structured Luff sails allow more control over the sails luff and shape than ever before. Also lighter and faster than any other sail on the market.

Which Structured Luff Sail is right for you? Structured Luff sails are exclusive to Doyle Sails and whether you are racing or cruising, each sail is custom designed and purpose built to suit your requirements.

Talking to Doyle Sails will ensure you get the perfect sail for your boat - your experts in sailing.
